LAT boosts circulation, thanks to digital

fasfax2.jpgThe paper's Monday-Friday numbers are up 6 percent, to 653,868, for the October through March reporting period. But print fell 11.5 percent, to a stunningly low 432,873. Sunday circulation was flat overall, but down 8.7 percent on the print side, according to the Alliance for Audited Media. At the Orange County Register, daily print circulation - what the paper hopes to bolster - was 159,411, down slightly from a year earlier. Overall circulation was up sharply, thanks to the paper's branded editions (community papers and such) that are included in the audit totals. Nationally, the big news is that the NYT has topped USA Today in daily circulation.
